Colleen C. - Seeking Work in Baltimore

17.14 / hour

I have had a love of children for as long as I can remember. I always helped to take care of younger family members growing up and when I was seventeen I obtained a position at a local daycare center where I worked as both an assistant and an infant/toddler teacher for over three years. For the 2009-2010 school year I was a nanny to three very active little boys, a one-year old and two three-year olds. I have also been a nanny and/or babysat for multiple other families. Beginning in July of 2010 I obtained a position as an infant/toddler teacher at Wonder Friends Inc. in Towson, Maryland where I worked until February 2011. While working at xx I received a job offer from xx daycare where I worked from March 2011 – September 2012. In September of 2012 I chose to leave the field of childcare in an attempt to pursue other career opportunities and I obtained a position at xx. I learned quite a bit in those six months working in an office in the medical field; but during that time it became even clearer to me that my true passion is childcare! Between April and September 2013 I worked as a nanny for a fantastic family with one awesome little boy; but unfortunately the family relocated to Texas. Currently, The Goddard School Inc in Baltimore, Maryland employs me.

The experience I have with kids is from newborn to age 14. I have been on my current job for about a year and I am only leaving this position because I need to move to Baltimore to complete my bachelor’s degree. The kids were 8, 10, and 12 years old when I began to take care of them and now they are 9, 11, and 13. My job consists of organizing the house (cleaning the kitchen, watering the plants, walking the dog, feeding the dog and the cats, doing the kids laundry and keeping their room clean), doing grocery shopping and sometimes clothing shopping for the kids, cooking dinner, driving the kids to soccer practice and games, ballet, piano class, doctors appointments, tutor, and pretty much anywhere that they need to go. Also, when the kids and I have free time we always enjoy playing soccer or basketball, practicing ballet moves, biking, doing our nails and make-up, watching movies, baking cakes, and so on. My first job as a nanny lasted for 3 years (From 2008 to May 2011) and although I no longer work for them full-time, I still babysit the kids. One of the kids (a boy) when I began to take care of was 3 months old, the other 10 (a boy), and the other was born (a girl) when the 3 months old baby was 18 months old. The little boy, now 4 years old, is my biggest lovely challenge. He has a heart problem and the parents believe that this is the cause for some of his delays. He learned how to walk when he was over 2 years old and he still has a big delay on his language skills. I work every day on his vocabulary and also on his climbing, going up and down the slides, stairs, and so on. The little girl is a typical, now two-years-old, little girl that knows everything, can say anything, and has enough energy to sustain a whole city :). The older boy, now 14, is a typical teenager whom I basically became a great friend, driver, and partner to play video game and to watch movies. While working for this family I cooked for the kids, gave them a bath, drove them around to any place they needed to go (including to doctors appointments). I liked for the kids to go to the playground (playground set at the mall when it is too cold), took to Barnes&Noble, and I was always looking for something new and different for the kids to do outside the house. When at the house I liked to read with the kids, play with the kids toys in a manner where the kids can really learn how to play and not the break toys and be messy. I also like to enjoy and have lots of fun with the kids.

My first childcare experience was for a friend of the family; I cared for their toddler on a few occasions, including changing diapers, preparing dinner, and putting the child to bed. Starting in Jr. High I also became co-teacher in the Sunday school nursery room (ages 3-5). For the Sunday school class I prepared lessons, provided snacks, and oversaw free time in the gym. My next experience in childcare was for my own family. I have three younger siblings, two of which are much younger than I am. I was 14 when my brother was born and I immediately became the after school caregiver for him and my sister who was a toddler at the time. I changed diapers, prepared bottles, played with them, and often cooked dinner for my family. I continued to care for my siblings until I went to college in the fall of 2004. In college my major was elementary education and my classes provided ample opportunity to work with elementary aged children. Although education is different in many ways from childcare, I believe the skills I accumulated from my college classes and from student teaching have well prepared me for childcare. After college I moved with my husband to a small town in Illinois, where I took up several jobs including substitute teaching. My experiences as a substitute teacher taught me to be flexible and prepared for anything; it was also an opportunity to work with many different age groups from pre-school to fifth grade. For the past 3 years I was a nanny for an only child. I arranged play dates and outings, prepared dinner occasionally, and did light housekeeping.

Full-Time, 10 + Years of Nanny Experience I am a 30-year-old Caucasian female in the Baltimore area. I grew up in Severna Park, Maryland, which is right outside Annapolis. I live in Canton (downtown Baltimore) with my fiance and look forward to having children of my own in the next 3-5 years. I have experience working with children of all ages primarily ranging from newborn - 12 yrs. I have worked with children with special needs (i. e. down syndrome, ADHD, dyslexia, Asperger's, and hearing impaired). I am just about to finish school as a certified American Sign Language Interpreter. That being said, I always encourage parents of newborns to learn baby sign in order to best communicate with their child. I have been teaching baby sign language for the past 5 years. I am currently a nanny for two 12-month-olds. One of which began signing back to me around 7. 5 months old. She has learned all the "key" signs and at 12 months has picked up approximately 2-5 signs a day. I am a firm believer in a daily regimented routine in order to keep a positive balance. I have worked with families of 4 kids to families enjoying their first , nanny shares( where two families in the same community with similar schedules have me provide care to both children, while allowing them to have a permanent playmate), to daycare centers. I babysat a lot in my younger years and began "Nannying " when I was 18 years of age. I prefer one on one interaction as opposed to working in a daycare facility. That allows me to really focus on each child's developmental needs without all the distractions. I also believe it to be a much more sanitary and hygienic atmosphere. You'd be surprised how many parents will send their sick child to daycare. I am very active and energetic if you can't already tell. I enjoy being outside and especially creating fun and educational activities for children. (Typically referring to the ages 1. 5-2 yrs and up)I was very active growing up so my parents always planned ahead structured activities to keep me busy. That 's how I like to run things. Last, but certainly not least, I am CPR and First Aid certified. I try to renew my certification every 2-3 years. I have a love for life, and love for children of all ages, genders, nationalities, etc.

Taking care of kids has always been a part of my life. Whether it was my cousins - which I have a lot of seeing that I have 12 aunts and uncles- or being the go-to neighborhood sitter. I absolutely love being a sitter and have been lucky enough to experience the joys of being a nanny. A little about my past childcare experience: Being the go-to neighborhood sitter was my first experience and they were great. Although I look back and realize I was only a few years older than most of the "kids" I took care of:) I became very close to one particular family who I would sit for on a weekly basis. I now call their three beautiful children my god kids. While in College I nannied for a wonder family, the Francks. I had the pleasure of taking care of their wonderful little boy, Lucas. I was lucky enough to be introduced to Lucas life when he was just 6 months old and cared for him until he turned three. If it was up to me, Lucas and I would still be playing around but the Francks had to make a move due to their job. I have two beautiful nieces that I have taken care for both short and long term stays during times of military deployment their mother had to take. The past five months I have spent taking care of my nieces as their mother once again had to deployed. i may be biased but they are pretty amazing little girls. The eldest is 7 and the youngest is 5. We spend lots of time reading, most recently the eldest has become obsessed with wild life so we spend many afternoons in the library nose deep in books and writing stories about her favorite animals.
